doesn't that make you wonder?

This inventory is a necessary first step. It can be very tedious to
build a spreadsheet of ambiguous cases X implementations X versions,
but it could be automated with a test document?

The test document would list ambiguous cases with unique "IDs", that
could then be automatically extracted from each resulting transform,
to record the behavior of each implementation on each test
(existing... or future implementations, and their versions).

(If and when a consensus is reached, the same test document (or test
suite) could be used to check for conformance).
